Christmas Cookies

For me, Christmas is all about traditions. One of our favorite ones is baking cookies. Yesterday was baking day. Earlier in the week I got out the recipes, checked what ingredients I had on hand, and Friday we went shopping for the things still needed. Saturday morning, we got right to work. It was quite the festive day as we listened to Christmas music and made five different varieties of cookies: peanut butter blossoms, chocolate mint Kiss cookies, homemade poptarts, chocolate peppermint crunch, and oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. I did sample a couple as they came out of the oven, but for the most part, we managed to wait and indulge for dessert after dinner.

Here's a peek at what we did.

Since it's just the two of us, we won't eat all of these ourselves, but we'll share some with family, friends, and coworkers.

So how about you? What cookies are your Christmas favorites?

Until next time,

Thanks Margot!

Would you like a candy cane in your tea?! That's the only way to drink it for the holidays!!
